    So nintendo just announced a new account system for online, that branches to both smart devices and social media. Posting it here cos I'd be interested to hear what the homebrew devs have to say about its potential impacts

    Personally I cant wait for our new DRM overlords

    Did we know about a new mario and luigi RPG game? Or is that a collection? It's earlier in the report.

    It was announced at e3 earlier this year, its a M&L/paper mario cross over

    Hopefully its an actual good paper mario, unlike sticker star. Im still shocked that no one chose to do a rom hack to actually make that game good

    I thought there was a dedicated news thread somewhere, but I can't find it... Great find though.

    My thoughts:
    Great idea. I'll be keeping my NNID though. I'm guessing you'll choose a display name for in games if you use one of the other methods?

    I love this idea, though I'm betting it'll be like $5 per 200 hrs played lol. Still, it's improvement.

    Hopefully it would allow you to sign into another system with your ID and download that save data to take elsewhere. Ideally it would allow USB backups too.

    Miitomo seems weird and unappealing to me. Slides for that here.

    Overall, a great direction for the platform. Looks like Nintendo is trying to get back up to par with the times. From a hacking standpoint, if they go to an all cloud-based system, we could be screwed. I don't see that happening though, or it would end up like the Xbox One fiasco before they realized consumers were going to boycott if the console had to be connected to the internet at all times.

    Yeah I thought we had a news section for wii u, but we dont, so I posted here
    I'd like to think Nintendo are dumb enough to allow this to work with any future emunand stuff. It'd be nice to have an actual account system so you can share games and such

    Well its a complete overhaul to the entire system, linking everything to everything, so I'd hardly call it inconsequential. But ok, stay bitter
